Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ★★★★½

“She's safe, just like I promised. She's all set to marry Norrington, just like she promised. And you get to die for her, just like you promised. So we're all men of our word really... except for, of course, Elizabeth, who is in fact, a woman.”

Grade: A
(PG-13) Action, Adventure

I have never seen this franchise but I am a huge fan of the iconic theme and ride so I thought I would at least have some fun with this. But wow did this blow me away. For a movie that was 2+ hrs, I was never bored. The music, the costumes, the practical effects, the CGI, the action, the script, the performances were all around amazing. These aspects were so good in fact that I would even put them up there with LOTR. I was just super blown away with how amazing of a movie this is even now. Crazy to think this is a Disney movie (they haven’t always been my favorite film studio). Can’t wait to see more of the franchise! Also Captain Jack Sparrow easily became one of my favorite cinematic characters of all time. 

Favorite Scene: “I didn’t waste my shot”
